“One Syracuse University student will have exclusive access to his or her favorite study space during midterms through an SU Libraries contest. SU Libraries is offering students the opportunity to compete to win a reserved table to study at during midterms through a social media contest. The contest requires students to take a picture of their favorite study space at the library and post it to social media sites, such as Instagram, Facebook or Twitter, using the #mySULspace hashtag.” (via The Daily Orange)
Boston Globe – “A group of librarians sashayed and slowly twirled to the beat of the 1964 hit song “Chapel of Love’’ while pushing book carts around the Crowne Plaza hotel ballroom. Leading the way was Gerry Deyermond, who proudly wore a white veil and gave her best “princess wave’’ to the audience as she marched in time alongside her colleagues from Andover’s Memorial Hall Library.
This was one of three choreographed routines performed Wednesday afternoon during the Massachusetts State Book Cart Drill Team Competition, a quirky, little-known contest that has become a regular event at the state’s annual library conference.”
